Description

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) hasn't said if he'll make a 2012 presidential bid but he does have one person he doesn't want to run: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "I hope Mayor Bloomberg won't even consider that," Barbour told CNN. "But if there were a strong third-party candidate, there's no question in my mind that candidate would draw votes away from the Republican." Bloomberg originally ran for NYC mayor as a Republican but changed his voter registration in 2007 and ran for reelection as an independent. But Bloomberg said Tuesday he doubts an independent candidate could win the White House.
